The Ohio History Connection says a collection of Native American earthworks is being considered for designation as a World Heritage Site. 

The Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks will be the next U.S. nomination considered by the World Heritage Committee. The earthworks also under consideration include sites such as the Fort Ancient Earthworks in Warren County and the Newark Earthworks in Heath that date back to between 100 B.C. and 300 A.D. Officials hope the designation will help the earthworks become an international tourist attraction.
